So far so good

CHIN H LIN, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: So far so good. Just need a bigger internal drive to expand from 500 GB to 2TB and found this excellent and inexpensive offer from Amazon. No problem setting it up with a quick format. Using Acronic True Image program cloned my 500 GB C-drive to this 2TB drive in less than 30 minutes.

Lasted for three years and now she's gone to the hard disk's heaven

Juan "pedemonti", Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I've never had a drive die on me before. I always ended up retiring them when their capacity turned negligible due to technology evolution. This won't be the case, though. This drive lasted for three years.

Failed after 3years and 1month!!!

C&A, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased two 2TB HGST Deskstar in May of 2011 one of them failed July of 2014 with only 16053.6 hrs of operation. I can't find any MTBF data on this series of HDD(s) you would be better off buying the NAS series at least they give a MTBF of 1M hours.

Never had a drive fail so quickly

Stephanie Millard, Amazon
22 September 2012
  • Summary: ORIGINAL REVIEW: September 2012 - Bought this drive through Fry's at the store, so no shipping. That eliminates damage potential there. Took it home as a media drive for my HTPC. To clarify, we mostly use internet for the HTPC, so this was lightly used.

Excellent in tight enclosures and potentially in a RAID

D. Alexander, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: This is probably my favorite media server hard disk. I've got eight in a RAID-5 that's been running 24/7 for over six months. None were dead on arrival. None have died since purchase or dropped out of my RAID.
